Set up is a breeze when you take this handy oversized tent cot with you for camping. The steel-framed bed is wide enough for comfortable rest. Slip on the rain fly to ensure you stay dry through unexpected rain storms while in the woods....more
I am a 270 pound man and this tentcot had plenty of room and was very comfortable. I used a 3 inch memory foam pad and a sleeping bag and set it up behind some sand dunes on the outerbanks and slept great all night.The fold up sides let plenty of fresh air in and the zip up screens kept out any insects.It sets up and packs up in less than 3 to 4 minutes.Great product for the money.
I used this tent cot at firemen's convention and I wish I would have purchased this years ago. It was perfect! I don't need a camper or an expensive car, I don't have to bother anyone for a space to sleep. It sets up easily and its very convinent, and roomy.
How accurate was the sizing? Right on
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very sturdy and roomy
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
I was very excited to receive this product from the many good reviews I read and from a buddy of mine that actually bought one too, however, during my initial setup the very top right corner on the chair back side ripped!!! My initial thought was "#@% I did something wrong" but upon further investigation into the inside of the tent I noticed that the tent was sewn wrong thereby attaching the side of the tent to the corner further down than it was meant to be. Imagine my sigh of relief...I'm hoping this is just a rare occurrence because the rest of the tent cot is very well made (and I checked EVERYWHERE). I did a replacement request *** within 20 minutes of opening box so I'm crossing my fingers this will be an easy exchange...but onto the review. I like the foam mattress that it comes with but I may still add another thin air mattress as I prefer the comfort for my back. The head room that this oversized tent cot comes with is just right for my 6 ft (200+ lb) frame while sitting toward the center but you wouldn't be able to hang a light there at the same time. That was a nice surprise too, that it even included ties at the very center to do so. There's 4 hanging pockets on each end (3 small and 1 large that has a velcro closure) but they face toward the outside of the tent and seems it would be a little awkward getting things into or out of unless you were grabbing whatever out from the outside when the ends are open but this is a very small inconvenience for myself. There's a small vent door on the top center of each side door that is secured with velcro running down the sides to keep it open or closed at any position that I imagine is to cut back on condensation inside (very clever) or just for someone else to peek inside and talk to you (Ummm, ok) as it is located on the outside portion of the doors. The poles up top are simple enough with ends that are simply placed into the holes on plastic connectors at each end and are held in place by plastic connectors that just snap onto the poles, very convenient for small areas as you don't have to start feeding the poles through anything. The zippers have color coordinated cords for easy opening (black for outside tent portion and yellow for inside mesh). The legs come with sturdy plastic feet attached to them with teeth for traction. I knew that it was a 4-in-1 system (chair, lounge, cot and tent cot) when buying it but found that the chair configuration was somewhat larger than I had hoped for as I cannot sit all the way back and have my feet on the ground at the same time. Maybe this would be better for someone larger than myself as there is plenty of room on this cot to fit those individuals but I have to scoot up and forgo using it comfortably and it's not the reason I got this to begin with. Everything else works just fine though. All-in-all this tent cot is what I hoped for and more (minus the defect) and once I get my replacement I will definately give the quality of this product an EXCELLENT and refer it to all my friends. I hope this helps others looking to buy this.
This is a great idea for those times that I camp without my family. The quality of the tent is good. It has plenty of room inside for me and a small bag. I like being up off the ground as well. I did have to call due to a damaged carry bag ( the stitching around the zipper wasn't complete leaving an 8 in hole). Overstock was great and took care of replacing the part without any hassles. I would recommend this tent hands down.
I had a 1" foam pad I added to the cot. I slept warm and comfortable in 20 deg weather. Moisture did build up inside the tent ceiling but did not freeze. I would like to see the tent made of a little heavier material that is breathable. The rain fly worked good.
Plan to use it on overnight fishing trips this Spring and Summer.
Great product for the price. OverStock has the best deal anywhere on it.
TentCot arrived on time, no issues or damage.
Opened up the Cot and checked it. Everything was in great condition no issues with quality control.
I also have read that some folks have issues and seem to not be able to get the manufacture to respond via email
I called the manufacturer Kamp Rite before purchasing this product. Spoke with them and they were very helpful and knowledgeable. I questioned them about their warranty etc and was pleased with all their responses. I can only say that if you have an issue you need to call them directly at 1-800-709-9905. I spoke with Drew and he is very customer centric and assured me if I had any issues with my purchase that Kamp Rite would take care of me.
I can tell you that I love this product so much that I ordered another one tonight so me and my son can go camping together in them. I also deploy from time to time in disaster situations to assist as a first responder. I'm looking forward to not having to sleep in a tent on the ground ANY MORE ! ;)
Thanks for reading.
I was so excited to get this one-person tent option! The first thing I noticed is that it has a very strong "plastic" odor initially so be sure to air it out before you go on your first campout. The second thing I noticed was that the rainfly was missing. However, after contacting the company, they promptly sent me a replacement! I have been quite pleased with this cot overall. It did not rain the first time I used it, so I can't speak as to how the rain fly will work, but otherwise it's a great little tent!
How accurate was the sizing? very
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes, although it was missing the rainfly
Hello acarrasquillo, This tent cot has received excellent reviews! This comes with a .75-inch EVA pad, which is an insulating pad; not considered a sleeping pad. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 6, 2013
